PDO and PGI as ingredients of other products
Instituto dos Vinhos do Douro e do Porto, Porto, Portugal
Geographical indications and designations of origin are industrial property rights. Some may have a strong distinctive power in order to attract the consumer even if the geographical indication or designation of origin is used in a non-comparable product. There is another problem: use of the geographical indication or designation of origin as an ingredient in another product. A true indication does not mean a loyal indication on trade.
